The Nepali Congress has called on the government to take the Netra Bikram Chand-led Communist Party of Nepal into confidence and convince them to come to the negotiating table.
In a statement on Saturday, NC spokesperson Bishwa Prakash Sharma urged the government to take initiatives without any prejudice to bring the Chand-led party within the ambit of constitution.
The government on Tuesday had decided to take stern measures against the outfit, saying that the group had been involved in violent activities.
The main opposition party cautioned the government to not adopt the path of prohibition against the constitution.
The Chand party, which was accused of indulging in extortion and criminal activities, had detonated two bombs in the Capital on February 22 and March 8. One person had died and two others were injured in the first blast in Nakkhu.
